Stay Healthy This Winter* || With Care+

If you're anything like me, this time of year proves to be a bit of a nightmare for staying fit and healthy. I'm forever fighting off or coming down with something, be it the simple cold or the more serious flu. And joints? Don't even talk to me about joint problems. My arthritis is always flares up in winter. So I was incredibly grateful to be sent some vitamin tablets promising to help with all my health needs!

Book Review: Our House by Louise Candlish

On a bright January morning in the London suburbs, a family moves into the house they’ve just bought in Trinity Avenue. 

Nothing strange about that. Except it is your house. And you didn’t sell it. 

When Fiona Lawson comes home to find strangers moving into her house, she's sure there's been a mistake. She and her estranged husband, Bram, have a modern co-parenting arrangement: bird's nest custody, where each parent spends a few nights a week with their two sons at the prized family home to maintain stability for their children. But the system built to protect their family ends up putting them in terrible jeopardy. In a domino effect of crimes and misdemeanours, the nest comes tumbling down.

Now Bram has disappeared and so have Fiona's children. As events spiral well beyond her control, Fiona will discover just how many lies her husband was weaving and how little they truly knew each other. But Bram's not the only one with things to hide, and some secrets are best kept to oneself, safe as houses.

Treat Yo Self || Black Friday Haul Post!

As many of you will know, the UK and America recently saw Black Friday hit our stores. I'm a sucker for a deal, so of course I used Black Friday as an excuse to treat my self. And I thought I'd share my Black Friday haul with you guys! So here's what I've been buying in the Black Friday sales. 

So, ASOS had 20% off their entire range. I love ASOS. I don't think I've made any secret of the fact that my bridesmaid's dresses came from ASOS. I don't spend a huge amount of money on clothes, unless I'm in Primark. But ASOS have a fab living and gifts range, that I enjoy checking for newly added products. I then save them to my wish list and when I'm feeling spendy (or a sale's on) I make a purchase. Here's what I picked up from ASOS in the Black Friday sales (from front to back).

5 Reasons Why Christmas Sucks!

I don't want to alarm anyone, but in two weeks time Christmas Eve will be upon us. The festivities will be well under way. And all across the country, families will be coming together to celebrate the festive season. 

But for some, Christmas can be a challenging time. For the introverts, it can be a stressful time full of parties, gatherings, friends and family. For anxiety sufferers, it can be a season fraught with pressure. The pressure to see everyone, to buy everything, and to enjoy every minute. 

So today I thought I'd share with you just a few reasons why I think Christmas can really suck. Because I'm one of those people who find Christmas a really challenging time. And I'm hoping there are others out there who feel the same way.

If you didn't already know, Lush recently released a load of new bath bombs based on your favourites. If you didn't already know, then you're obviously not much of a Lush fan. Because within a day or two of this collection being released, you'd better believe I was on their site and placing an order. Yep, I bought all twelve Community Favourites Bath Bombs. And today I'm going to share what they are and what the mysterious thirteenth bath bomb I picked up that wasn't a Community Favourite is.

Book Review: The Collector by Fiona Cummins

The Collector by Fiona Cummins is the gripping sequel to Rattle.

Jakey escaped with his life and moved to a new town. His rescue was a miracle but his parents know that the Collector is still out there, watching, waiting…

Clara, the girl he left behind, is clinging to the hope that someone will come and save her.

Life has fallen apart for Clara's mother as she starts to lose hope.

The Bone Collector has a new apprentice to take over his family's legacy. But he can't forget the boy who got away and the detective who had destroyed his dreams.

Detective Etta Fitzroy's life collapsed when the Collector escaped. With Clara still missing, and a new wave of uncannily similar murders beginning, will she be able to find him again?

The Collector is back and this time he has nothing to lose . . .
